Senators to Launch Tea Party Caucus

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) "on Friday announced the launch of the Senate Tea Party Caucus, making good on an idea he floated during last year’s campaign," Roll Call reports.

GOP Sens. Jim DeMint (S.C.) and Mike Lee (Utah) will join the Kentucky Republican as the first members of the caucus.

The group’s "first meeting will be on Jan. 27."

According to a joint statement announcing the caucus issued Friday afternoon, "citizens will be invited to speak so we can hear from them and address their concerns about what’s happening in Washington."
